ISBE DELL e-Broadcast Newsletter 2013.249—Comprehensive Planning: Preparing for the FY15 Application for TBE/TPI/Title III Funding
The application process for FY15 TBE/TPI and Title III funds will begin soon. To review some of the changes in the process this year, the Division of English Language Learning will offer a Webinar on Monday, December 16, 2013 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
- The Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator (Part I of the application), available on IWAS beginning December 1, 2013, is much shorter this year and does not contain school level enrollment information or funding ceilings. Districts that want to apply for funds must create and submit an application on IWAS. In Part I, districts must confirm that ELL Student information on SIS has been reviewed for accuracy. The deadline for submission of Part I to ISBE is January 31, 2014.
- SIS student records determine your district’s funding level. Districts are responsible for ensuring that English learner and immigrant student data on SIS is accurate and complete by March 3, 2014. Multiple data elements are used to calculate funding levels for FY15. Funding formula data will be extracted once for all districts in the state on the same date in early March. This data will be final and will generate TBE/TPI, LIPLEPS and Immigrant Education Program funding allotments that will appear in the TBE/TPI and Title III Application (Part II) on IWAS.
- The TBE/TPI and Title III Application (Part II) will be available on IWAS on May 1, 2014. It must be submitted to ISBE by June 30, 2014.
